To the Editor: As a young woman nearly 21 years of age I can easily recall the fateful morning of 9/11/01. I was at Sunnyside Elementary School when the announcements started pouring in. We as kids at the time had no idea what this really meant. Growing up and learning about it in school makes me really appreciate in a sobering way the strife this country went through after the events.
To the Editor: Many people in Red Wing have been enjoying the magnificent music of the Cuban choir that has been performing in Red Wing this week. You have a couple more opportunities. At 6:30 p.m. today, Wednesday, members will perform at First Lutheran Church. Saturday at 11 a.m. they will be at the Seventh Day Adventist Church. At 4:50 p.m. they begin their performance at the Church of St. Joseph. On Sunday, the choir will sing at 10:30 a.m. at First Presbyterian Church and 7 p.m. at United Lutheran Church. Thursday they will be at St.
To the Editor: What is this? Somebody hates a duck statue? I am glad it happened for one reason. I have seen the duck floating about town and thought, nearly subconsciously, "Mmmmm, s'pose some fiberglass wizard in some factory somewhere made that for us." Now I know it was made by our local Jason Jech. I don't know Jason, but I do know his mom, mother-in-law and wife. Not only does every great man have a good woman or three in his life, that man is sometimes pretty great on his own. I think I would like to see the story of how the duck got made.
To the Editor: Christ Episcopal Church is excited to welcome the choir from Cuba to our service Sunday Sept. 9. I hope you will join us at 10 a..m.to hear them sing. Please note that the time previously listed is incorrect. Catherine Johnson Red Wing
To the Editor: RWHS Class of 2012, some of you have begun new adventures, some of you are preparing for those new adventures.

To the Editor: Thank you for running a story on Red Wing Out of the Darkness Walk (R-E, Aug. 1). My mom saw the article and we put together our team. I hope you will be there today at Bay Point to cover the great turn out as well as the amount raised. I grew up in Red Wing and I am looking forward to coming "home" and participating in this event, getting the word out on suicide prevention and awareness is especially important to my family, and many others. I would thank you for the acknowledgement of this cause in the R-E and hope you continue to do so. Melanie Dettmer Wayzata, Minn.
To the Editor: We are longtime fans of theater, both classic theater and history theater. It's great to know the services of the Soapbox Players remain active. Right now, we want to see "8." It's been playing all over the country, at least 200 readings according to recent reports. This weekend it's playing in Maryland, Pennsylvania, Illinois and Red Wing. We're coming to Red Wing. Of course, you can read about this trial, the results of which are soon to be reviewed in one way or another by the United States Supreme Court. That legal text may be exciting in itself.
To the Editor: Thanks to Michael Anderson (R-E, Aug 15) and Kris Tomanek (Aug. 19) for furthering the debate on the Minnesota Marriage Amendment. I would like to reply. First, my letter (Aug. 8) clearly hurt some people's feelings. This amendment elicits strong feelings on both sides because marriage is an issue our society holds dear. I work with some of those who responded to me. I love working with them. They are great people. I don't want to hurt anyone, but I do want what is best for our society. Second, Ms.
To the Editor: The Republican Eagle is a part of Forum Communications Co., which is a media firm in Fargo, N.D. Forum Communications Co. publishes a number of newspapers, including The Forum of Fargo-Moorhead in North Dakota, South Dakota, Minnesota and Wisconsin. As a resident of Belle Creek in Goodhue County where the proposed AWA Goodhue Wind Project is proposing to build, I was very offended to see the Republican Eagle promoting the extension of the production tax credit (R-E. Aug. 22). Why? Then I recalled that the Eagle is not locally owned.
To the Editor: Nine bystanders were shot and injured in the recent New York City killing by the police of a suspect accused of killing his employer. All nine were determined to have been shot by the police. Mayor Bloomberg and the NYC Police Department: Let's make a deal. I will stay out of New York if you will agree to stay out of Minnesota.
